Chinese Cop Goes on a Rampage

Add this to the recent spate of bizarre Chinese killings lately. In this one, it was a cop who was responsible.

HOHHOT – A policeman was detained after shooting three civilians dead and injuring a police chief in Taipusi Banner, north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Saturday.

The suspect, Wang Fengliang, was a detective in the public security bureau in the banner.

The bureau got a report from a police station in Luotuo Township at 2 a.m. Saturday saying a senior couple were shot dead at their home, and the police suspected Wang was involved in the murder.

Police later found the couple’s daughter was also shot dead in a rented flat in the banner.

Wang refused to surrender, after the bureau chief surnamed Huo led a team of policemen to his residence at 3 a.m. Saturday. He used a gun to shoot Huo twice before he was captured by other policemen.

Huo was currently hospitalized.

Wang Xinle, deputy director of the regional bureau of public security, was overseeing the investigation of the case.
